create more demand. and demand creates jobs. and so that is part of what -- reporter: he says a new president could come in and cancel president obama's executive action. all eyes ready to watch. mike mibach, ktvu channel 2 news. >> and that speech is just about to start. we join fox coverage now. presentation. >> and good evening from fox world headquarters in new york. i'm shepard smith. the president is about to speak to the nation from the white house him officials say he will announce the biggest changes to the nation's immigration system in decades affecting nearly, they tell us. 5 million people who came to this country illegally. some will be eligible for work perms to avoid deportation. others can apply for a program that start some will be eligible for work permits, others can apply for a program that started in
5:01 pm
2012 to let young immigrants stay here in the united states. the dreamers. whose parents brought them to the nation. according to white house the president is calling for accountability, not amnesty. the feds will focus on deporting criminals and people who recently crossed the boarder. he will use his lawful authority to deall of this. republican leaders claim he is going too far and they are promising to take steps to stop the president. mitch mcconnell says the president will regret taking the executive action. tonight according to those remarks the president is to say to lawmakers who question his actions he has one answer, pass a bill. something that they have done in the senate but have not been able to do in the house. this is a political football no doubt and no matter what the particulars of what is said
5:02 pm
tonight you can expect republicans to take this all the way to capitol hill. >> tonight i would like to talk to you about immigration. for 200 years of rudition of wellcock -- tradition has given us an advantage. kept us youthful, dynamic, it has shaped our character as a people with limitless possibilities. able to remake ourselves as we choose. but today our immigration system is broken. everybody knows it. family whose enter our country the right way and play by the rules watch others flout the rules. business owners who offer good wages see the competition exploit undocumented immigrants by paying them less. all of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards
5:03 pm
without taking on the responsibilities of living in america. and undocumented immigrants who want to embrace the responsibilities see little option but to remain in the shadows or risk their families being torn apart. it has been this way for decades. for decades we haven't done much about it. when i took office i committed to fixing this broken immigration system and i began by doing what i could to secure the boarders. today we have more technology deployed to secure our boarder than at any time in our history. over the past six years illegal boarder crossings have been cut by more than half. although this summer the was a brief spike -- there was a brief spike the number of children is now lower than in two years. over all the number of people trying to cross our boarder illegally is at its lowest
5:04 pm
level since the 1970s. those are the facts. meanwhile i worked with congress on a fix and last year 68 democrats, republicans and independents came together to pass a bipartisan bill in the senate. it wasn't perfect. it was a compromise. it would have doubled the number of boarder patrol agents and givingundocumented immigrants a path way -- and giving undocumented immigrants a path way to citizenship. -- had the house allowed that kind of bill a simple yes or no vote they would have passed with support from both parties. and today it would be the law. but for a year and a half now republican leaders in the house have refused to allow that simple vote. i continue to believe the best way to solve this problem is by
5:05 pm
working together to pass that kind of common sense law. but till that happens there are actions i have legal authority to take as president, the same kinds of actions actions taken by perez dependents before me that will make the system more fair and more just. tonight i am announcing those aces. first, we will build on our progress at the boarder with additional resources for law enforcement personnel so they can stem the flow of illegal crossing and speed the return of those who do crossover. second, i will make it easier and faster for high skilled immigrants, graduates and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to the economy as so many business leaders proposed. third, we will take steps to deal responsibilitiy with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already live in our country. i want to say more about this
5:06 pm
because it generates the most passion and controversy. even as we are a nation of immigrants, we are a nation of laws. undocumented immigrants broke our immigration laws and i believe they must be held accountable. especially those who may be dangerous. that is why over -- gang members, not a mom who is irking with hard to provide for her kids. we will prioritize like law enforcement does every day. even as we focus on deporting crimmials, millions of immigrants still live here
5:07 pm
illegally. let's be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people -- you. it's also not who we are as americans. after all, most of these immigrants have been here a long time. they work hard, often in tough low paying jobs they support their families. they worship at their churches. many of the kids are american born or spend mote of their lives here, their dreams and patriotism are just like ours. as my predecessor, problem once put it they are a part of american life. now here's the thing we expect people who live in this country to play by the rules. we expect that those who cut the line will not be unfairly rewarded. so we're going to offer the following deal if you have been in america for more than five years, if you have children who are american citizens or legal residents if you register pass
5:08 pm
a criminal background check and you are willing to pay your fair share of taxes you will be able apply to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation. you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law that's what this deal is. -now, let's be clear about what it isn't. this deal does not apply to anyone who has come to this country recently. because it does not apply to anyone who might come to america illegally in the future. it does not grant citizenship or the right no say her permanently or offer benefits citizens receive. only congress can do that. all we're saying is we're not going to deport you. i know some of the critics of this action calm it amnesty. well, it's not. amnesty is the immigration system we have today, millions of people who live here without paying tacks or fol league the
5:09 pm
rules politicians whip our votes at election time. that's real amnesty, leaving this broken system the way it is. mass amnesty would be unfair, mass deportation would be both possible and contrary to our character. what i'm describing is accountability. a common sense middle ground approach. if you meet the criteria, can you come out of the shadows anp get right with the law. if you are a criminal, you will be deported. if you plan to enter the u.s. illegally, your chances of getting caught and sent back just went up. the actions i'm taking are not only lawful they are the actions by every democratic and republican president for the past half century. to those members of congress who question my authority to make my immigration system work better or question the wisdom of me acting where congress has failed i have one answer pass
5:10 pm
a bill. i want to work with both partys to pass a more permanent legislative solution and the day i sign that bill into law the actions i take will no longer will necessary. meanwhile, don't let a disagreement over a single issue be a deal breaker on every issue. it's not how our democracy works and congress certainly shouldn't shut down our government again just because we disagree on this. americans are tired of gridlock and what our country needs from us right now is a common purpose a higher purpose. most americans support the types of reforms i talked about tonight but i understand the disagreements held by many of you at home. millions of us, myself included, go back generations in this country with ancestors who put in the painstaking work to become sitss, so we don't like
5:11 pm
the notion that anyone will get a free pass to citizenship. it won't change the fab breck of who we are or take our jobs or stick it to the middle class who feel they've gotten a deal for decade. i share those concerns, that's not what these steps would do. our history and the facts show that immigrants are a net plus for our economy and our society. i believe it's sporpt all of us have this debate without impugning each other's character because for all the back and forth of walk, we have to remember that this debate is about something beger him it's about who we are as a country. who we want to be for future generations. generations. >> are we a nation that tolerates hypocrisy that workers that pick our fruit and make our beds never have a chance to fet right with the law or are we aflation to give them chance to
5:12 pm
make amends take responsibility and give their kids a better future? are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents' arms or are we a nation that values families and works together to keep them together? are we a nation that educates the best and brighters only to send them home to businesses or countries that compete against us or are we a nation that encourages them to stay, create jobs here create industries here right here in america? that's what this debate is all about. we need more than politics as usual when it comes to immigration. we need reason, thoughtful, compassionate debate that focuses on our hopes not our fears. i know the politics is a short time, but let me tell you why i
5:13 pm
have come to feel so strongly about it. over the past years, i've stein determination of immigrant fathers who worked two or three jobs without taking a dime from the government and at risk any moment of losing it all just to build a better life for their kids. i've seen the heart break and anxiety of children whose mothers might be taken away from them just because they didn't have the right papers. i've seen the courage of students who except for the circumstances of their birth are as american as malia or sasha, students who bravely come out as undocumented in hopes they can make a difference in the country they love these people, our neighbors our classmates, our friends, they did to the come here in search of a free ride or an easy life. they came to work and study and serve in our military around above all contribute to
5:14 pm
america's success and tomorrow i'll travel to las vegas and meet with some of these students, including a young woman, shelves brought to america when she was four-years-old. her only possessions were a cross her doll, and the frilly dress she had on. when she started school she didn't speak any english. she caught up to other kids by reading newspapers and watching pbs. and she became a good student. her father worked in landscaping, her mom cleaned other people's homes. they wouldn't let her apply to a technology magnet school not because they didn't love her, because they were afraid the paperwork would out her as an undocumented immigrant. so she applied behind their back and got in still she mostly lichd in the shadows until her grandmother who visited every
5:15 pm
year in mexico passed away. she couldn't travel to the funeral without risk of being found out and deported. it was around that time she started to begin advocateing for herself and others leak her and today she is a college student working on her third degree. with we a nation that kicks out a striebing hopeful immigrant or are we a nation that finds a way to welcome her in? . scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger for we know the heart of a stranger. we were strangers once too, my fellow americans, we are and always will be a flakes of immigrants. we were strangers once, too. and whether our forebearers were strangers who crossed the atlantic or the pacific or the
5:16 pm
rio grande, we are here only because this country welcomes them in and taught them to be an american is nothing more than what we look like what our last names were or how we worship, what makes us americans is our shared commitment to an idea that haul of us are created equal and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we we will. that's the country our parents and grandparents and jen railingss before them built for us. that's the tradition we must uphold. that's the legacy we must leave for those who are yet to come. thank you. god bless you and god bless this country we love. >> president obama at the white house live laying out his plans for immigration reform such that you can at his level, now
5:17 pm
it's the congress, where republicans will begin anew. continuing coverage on this fox station tonight on your late local news, analysis begins right now on the "o'reilly factor on satellite and cable. i will see you on that same the president just wrapped up his address to the county on immigration. we just heard from the president, he has three goals he talked about the fact he said we are and always have been a nation of immigrants. he said we all came from somewhere else no matter if you dross the atlantic or the

5:19 pm
i can tell the reaction there is very strong. >> reporter: very strong indeed and very emotional. local 87, they are janitors in san francisco. their leader is joining me now. off the top, as the president addressed the nation, i saw tears in your eyes, please tell us your thoughts right now. >> you know what, a lot of -- emotionally charged day. there was an earlier call we had, it was a big deal because 800 of my members lost their jobs and they had been working as janitors, they weren't taking anybody job but it provided for them and their families and they lost everything. they still have yet to find jobs and i am glad the president addressed that. these are hard working families. they are not criminals. and the families that are in
